Its best modifier is Mythical.

Notes[]

  • Projectiles spawn from the block nearest to the cursor, facing in the direction of the cursor relative to the player. If no blocks are nearby, the thorns will be summoned from the player. Background blocks, platforms, and actuated blocks do not count.

Tips[]

  • The Ice Blocks summoned by the Ice Rod can serve as roots for the Blood Thorns.
